  1. The Earworm Reverberation vs. The 43 Peculiarity: https://the-big-bang-theory.com/episode-tournament/
  2. The latest match is between The Panty Pinata Polarization and The Herb Garden Germination: https://the-big-bang-theory.com/episode-tournament/
  3. The season finales have proved to be popular in the past. Obviously we're running these tournaments, particularly the season specific ones, not long after the episode aired so maybe they are more firmly lodged in people's memories. 424 won back the Season 4 tournament back in 2011 even as an episode which tended to split opinion on the forum.
  4. The latest match is between The Long Distance Dissonance and The Barbarian Sublimation: https://the-big-bang-theory.com/episode-tournament/
  5. "The Opening Night Excitation" vs. "The Birthday Synchronicity" in the latest match: https://the-big-bang-theory.com/episode-tournament/
  6. The latest match between The Adhesive Duck Deficiency and The Staircase Implementation is open now: https://the-big-bang-theory.com/episode-tournament/
  7. The first round of the Seasons 1-10 episode tournament has opened: Updates will be posted in "The Show board".
  8. The nominations round has closed and now the sixteen most popular episodes battle it out in the first knock-out round. The sixteen episodes will go head-to-head in the following pairs: The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis vs. The Locomotive Manipulation, The Adhesive Duck Deficiency vs. The Staircase Implementation, The Opening Night Excitationvs. The Birthday Synchronicity, The Long Distance Dissonance vs. The Barbarian Sublimation, The Panty Pinata Polarization vs. The Herb Garden Germination, The Earworm Reverberation vs. The 43 Peculiarity, The Prom Equivalencyvs. The Luminous Fish Effect, and finally The Scavenger Vortex vs. The Gorilla Experiment. The first match is open for voting now and will run until Monday. After that there's a new match every other day. The first and last matches are padded only because there's a handover period needed, where I push a button to reset the rounds rather than the system starting them automatically at midnight. The second knock-out round will open on Monday, July 31. Cast your vote in the first knock-out match of our The Big Bang Theory Episode Tournament
  9. Here's what I could gleam from the record file for last summer's Seasons 1-9 episode tournament. It didn't count the number of votes in the nominations round exactly, but it included a vote count for each episode that made it to the knock-out rounds and an overall vote share for the nominations round, so I was able to calculate the number of nomination round votes. The vote counts in the knock-out rounds were included so I was able to just add those together. The one important point about this data is it shows the number of votes cast, not the number of voters. It doesn't know any difference between 16 people nominating just one episode or one person nominating all 16. It also doesn't know whether some people voted in every individual knock-out match or whether some people only voted in a few. Nomination Votes: 4460 (max 16 votes per person)Round 1 Votes: 2121 (max 8 votes per person)Round 2 Votes: 1130 (max 4 votes per person)Round 3 Votes: 733 (max 2 votes per person)Round 4 Votes: 665 (max 1 vote)Total Votes: 9,109 This year's tournament does seem quieter. The website traffic has been falling for a few years now so that plays a part. One other change is that we don't get as much traffic from Facebook or Twitter as we used to. People on the forum used to wonder why the voting didn't seem to match what seemed like popular opinion here. Often it was because there was a different fan base on FB and TW. They used to drive more people to the episode tournament pages, but changes to their algorithms seem to have meant not as many people see those posts now. I have the data for tournaments going back to S1-6 in 2013.
  10. I'll have to check what's kept. The individual votes are dumped from the database after each tournament. A record file is kept for each tournament which would include some information, though not necessarily the full picture, of voting. It definitely covers the knock-out rounds so I could see how many people voted for x vs. y, but I don't think that it would count all the votes in the nominations round so it wouldn't necessarily be a good gauge of how many people were voting. As far as it goes, that data would only be around from when the system was rewritten a few years back. Before that, I don't think anything was kept.
  11. These are the episodes I nominated: https://the-big-bang-theory.com/vr/sYGzm/ With only 16 choices there were some undoubtedly some episodes I missed off (my Season 10 choice is definitely open to question), but I think that's broadly what I'd consider to be my top episodes.
  12. The Seasons 1-10 episode tournament launched today. Updates will be posted in "The Show" board:
